Draymond Green wants Phoenix Suns fans to help him pay back his Devin Booker tampering fine from over a year ago.
Green knows how good Booker is from competing in the Pacific Division. It was a big mistake for him to say they need to get him out of town because they cannot win in Phoenix. Well, the Suns surrounded Booker with the necessary talent and they are playing in the Western Conference Semifinals as the No. 2 seed. Green wants Suns fans to repay him for his fine out of kindness.
He is planning to set up a GoFundMe for the $50,000 so they can donate the amount to charity.
Draymond Green wants to be recouped his Devin Booker tampering fine money
At this point, it is a sunk cost for a millionaire future Basketball Hall of Famer like Green. Nobody would repay him the money he cost himself last summer. But to do it for charity, yes, that is something Suns fans and other NBA fans might actually get behind. This would not have been possible if Phoenix did not have its best season in over a decade with Booker as the team’s star.
As far as how far can the Suns go this year, they might have the team capable of winning the whole thing. They need to be the Denver Nuggets in round two, as well as either the Dallas Mavericks, the LA Clippers or the Utah Jazz in the Western Conference Finals. From there, they would go up against one of four battle-tested teams from the Eastern Conference. It can happen.
It will be interesting to see how many people will actually help “pay back” Green for tampering.
